In order to get 100 MBPS out of a dual standard NIC, it needs to be
connected to another 100 MBPS (or dual standard) device by means of an
appropriately wired (usually Category 5 or Category 5e) cable. If both
ends and the cable are 100 MBPS capable, the connection will normally
automatically configure itself to run at the higher speed. If the
cable or the device at either end is limiting, it won't. You typically
see this with cable and ADSL modems - they generally have 10 MBPS lan
interfaces, so whatever is connected to them runs at that speed.
